On the 15th of May, I walked home with my adoptive sister, Lucy, and my boyfriend,
Emmett, and future father of a baby. I felt a little poke from inside my belly, then
water rushed down my old jeans. NO, I didn't urinate. My adoptive mom, Jessie, said
that I was probably in labor. Surprise, surprise, I was.
"Okay..." Emmett mumbled. "Jessie, you take me and June Luna, and Janet will take
Lucy, now is the time to head to the hospital, our little girl is coming!"
"Go!" cried Lucy.
"Nurse person," panted Emmett while I held my pregnant belly still. "Girlfriend, June
Luna, 17, labor, now."
"Calm down, kid. Where's your mom?" hissed the grouchy woman at the delivery center
in the hospital.
"She's not the pregnant one, I told you!" Emmett screeched. "That's my girlfriend,
get her in a room, our baby is coming!"
"All right, all right, fine, shut up."
"What a bitch," whispered Emmett in my ear and kissed my neck.
"Mkay, hi there, June Luna Willows, it's time, isn't it?" said the doctor, Melinda.
"Delivery time!" I cheered. Jessie brought Lucy in with a cup of crushed ice for me.
"Emmett, hold June Luna's hand, she's probably gonna squeeze it like crazy, get
Emmett nodded and grabbed my left hand.
"Oh, my," shrieked Melinda after I swallowed some crushed ice. "I see a hairy head,
she'd coming. Ready?"
"Aah! Go, hurry, Jessie, hold my other hand please!" I exclaimed.
I squeezed Emmett's hand so hard, it practically turned red and a little bloody.
Jessie's hand just turned pink from my grip.
"Forehead! Push more!"
An hour later, an 8 pound, 10 inch, healthy baby girl popped out.
"Yay!" cried Lucy, clapping. "That's the first delivery I've ever seen!"
"She's got your nose," I said to Emmett while he was about to cut the umbilical
"Happy birthday to Zelda Luna Janlead!"
